Peek Into a Secret Society of Entrepreneurs 9 (#Asse9)

Moderated by: Larry Chiang
Location: Sierra I Level:

Asse9 is pronounced asinine. We think its dumb if you don’t 100% of You Inc.

This THURSDAY networking session has as a goal to be 100% of you ROI for that badge you bought plus travel expenses to SF for Web 2.0 Expo.

We are using a workbook. It’s my mentor’s book, “What They Don’t Teach You at Harvard Business School.” It helped me start my first business in college, It’s about sales, hacking entrepreneurship, reading people, and sales. I said sales twice cuz Mr. McCormack is just that good. He’s the original Jerry Maguire.

Copies at Amazon sell for $0.01, but if you need a copy, call the Hotel W and ask for “Mr Burns” (my travel alias) in Suite 1220 and I’ll let you borrow one of my 12 copies. It’s the corner room with an upgrade using my “Tip, bribe, comp and tip” method for a free upgrade. Google it.

Asse9 stands for Austin Secret Society of Entrepreneurs 9. We are based in Palo Alto but we didn’t wanna be “Passe9”- “Palo Alto Secret Society of Entrepreneurs.” We are hosting/hosted a fun event late Wed night so check, rsvp and do your homework (reading WTDTYaHBS)!

P.S. I will have VCs for you to meet at the Benchmark sponsored afterParty.

PPS If you know of female entrepreneurs, please let them know they’re welcome with open arms.

PPPS Heck, if you wanna text me at 650-283-8008 / before this to say “hi,” I’ll give you a copy of Mr McCormack’s book :-). On Facebook, I am in the Austin, TX network holding a nerf gun.
